A hole in the revetment
A hole in the revetment
Freshwater running off the beach has found its way through a hole in what remains of the wooden revetment. The cliff beyond is comprised of various deposits, which can be seen in sections of recently exposed cliff face where so-called contorted drift appears as curves and swirls in the cliff material. The lower part of the cliff consists of a sand deposit overlain by a layer of till. Erosion is evidenced by the accumulation of sand at the cliff base, due to recent slides.
